NEW DELHI: In yet another incident of sex-crime against minors in the national capital, a 15-year-old intellectually disabled girl has been allegedly raped by six men in a public park in east Delhi's Mandawali area.
As per a report, the accused allegedly forced her to consume alcohol after which they raped her.
The incident took place on January 8 but came to light only recently after the girl narrated her ordeal to doctors at Lady Hardinge Hospital where she is undergoing treatment for mental stress. Subsequently, the doctors informed the police.
The police, on the basis of the complaint, registered a complaint and arrested all the accused. As per police, one of the accused knew about the girl's mental condition.
The victim, in her statement, told the police that she was talking a walk outside her house when one of the accused lured her to a nearby park on the pretext of offering her food. "He offered her drinks and took her to a guard's room where five of his friends joined him in the crime," said a police official.
The accused then took turns to rape her and threatened her not to reveal the incident to anyone. The girl returned home and kept mum about the incident. However, the incident was revealed after the girl, whose IQ level is low, went for a treatment for it and disclosed it to the doctors at Lady Hardinge Hospital.
On the basis of the girl's complaint, police arrested the main accused and on his instance, the other five were also nabbed from the same locality. One of the accused is claiming to be a juvenile and police are verifying his claims.
In a similar incident, a teenaged girl was raped allegedly by a 23-year-old bartender at a guest house in northwest Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar on Jnauary 10. The girl in her complaint alleged that the bartender also made her drink alcohol in the guest house room before sexually assaulting her. As per police, the victim had met the accused on a social media platform. The police also sealed the guest house, where the crime took place, as it did not follow the norms for giving rooms to visitors.
